Friday's Fret, Fact, and Fun
Fact: I am getting faster. Yes, let me take this moment to brag. About a year ago, I was ecstatic to run 10:30 miles.... THRILLED to run 10 min miles. When I broke 10 min miles I was OVER THE MOON! Well, on Monday, I ran 13.72 miles and the average pace was 8:36. Yeah... I know. Fast - for this woman. And despite my stops and stomach issues... I have run plenty of long runs with a similar pace. With the National Half Marathon only weeks away, I may even be able to do better. I am excited to get the chance to try. I have never raced a half marathon... went straight to the marathon. I think I am on target to break 2 hours, as I have done it in my long runs, but how fast can I go? Only time will tell!
I am excited to hang with my cousins and to see my sister. I hope to even get in a run with my sister... packing my shoes - going to MAKE it happen!
